DocClocker, an app that enables medical facilities to help provide patients with real-time wait time reporting, is reportedly “helping to prevent the spread of COVID-19 (coronavirus) nationwide by enabling patients to avoid long waits in medical waiting rooms—limiting exposure risks,” according to an announcement by the company.

Many healthcare clinics’ and hospitals’ waiting rooms have been crowded in recent weeks, with the global outbreak of coronavirus. With the DocClocker app, which was created and funded entirely by practicing medical physicians, medical providers can help support their patients by providing “real-time wait times and preventing the spread of the highly contagious virus by limiting the exposure of sick patients in waiting rooms.”

“It is important that people are not sitting in sick waiting rooms during the coronavirus outbreak when there are delays in the office. DocClocker providers value their patients’ time and are engaged in technology efficiencies that mitigate long wait times,” said Dr Eric Carter, Co-CEO and Co-Founder of DocClocker. 

DocClocker is on a mission to create transparency in the waiting room and enhance communication between medical providers and their patients. The DocClocker app allows for medical providers to deliver patients with waiting room wait times to increase patient satisfaction and positive reviews.

In addition, providers who use DocClocker can be located and selected on the app by prospective, in-network patients. The app can also help reduce front desk stress, according to the company, by allowing patients to manage appointments through the app and receive appointment reminders. 

“As governments and communities around the globe are doing everything in their power to prevent the spread of coronavirus, it is our obligation as medical providers to do the same for the safety of our patients. By providing real-time wait times to your patients with DocClocker, you are demonstrating your commitment and true care for their wellbeing,” said Dr Kevin Makati, Co-CEO and Co-Founder of DocClocker.
